The general problem of this investigation was the evaluation of reward and punishment for learning the maze by humans. Specifically, we wish to test Thorndike’s statement that pleasantness stamps in the right and unpleasantness stamps out the wrong; and furthermore, to find out what combination of pleasantness and unpleasantness in relation to right and wrong movements or choices is the most effective.
